What you get with this Hourlie

Do you have a task in which qualitative methodologies may be appropriate, but are not sure how to do go about it? Have you already started a qualitative or mixed methods research study and find yourself lost or confused with how to collect your data, or how to analyze data you have already collected? I can help!

We will schedule a one-hour video conference during which I will help with qualitative research design questions you may have. We will exchange some information before that meeting so I have a good sense of what you are trying to accomplish and we can devote the complete hour to address the specific concerns you may have. I have completed a number of these consulting video-conferences, and the one hour is usually enough for the buyers' needs, but we can negotiate longer conferences if needed.

Typical issues that I can provide help with are:

Study design:
- what methodologies are appropriate for my question?
- are qualitative methods appropriate? should I use a mixed approach?
- how can I build my study sample? (who should I interview, when should I do my observation, etc)
- what analytic approach should I use?

Data collection:
- how can I improve my recruitment?
- how can I gather better qualitative data through my interview / focus group / observation / etc?
- what is the best way of managing my data once it is collected?

Data analysis:
- what analytic method is best for my question?
- do I need some software to help me with analysis?
- I am using X software but have questions as to how to use it for its full potential

What the Seller needs to start the work

The buyer will need to send me basic information about the issue that they are needing help with. In particular, I will need basic information about:
- the research question that is guiding the study: what is the study about? (a brief one or two-page at the most document)
- any existing documentation that succinctly presents the design study as it is at the moment.
- specific issues or questions that the buyer wants to have addressed
- dates and times during which the buyer can be available for a video-conference

I will be able to schedule a time within 3 business days from the moment all documentation is received.
